What a wonderful and exciting whirlwind of a month it’s been! I have experienced Regina Beach and the surrounding area in an entirely different way. It’s been a lot of work and a lot of fun. I am very happy to see that a writing community is developing there and I look forward to peeking in on it when I spend time at Lumsden Beach this summer.
In a few hours, at 2 pm in the Last Mountain Lake Cultural Centre in Regina Beach, we’ll celebrate the launch of TALES FROM THE LAKE, a written and recorded collection of stories, poems, essays, word art and whatnot, created by local area residents and compiled in a chapbook. Some folks will give their first-ever professional reading and I’ll read from This hot place, the chapbook and new poetry.
